The San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) and City of San Diego (CoSD) are undertaking the San Diego hydroelectric power plant project in California, the US.
The project involves the construction of a hydropower plant with a capacity of 500MW.
It includes the construction of a substation, access roads, a lake tap, an arch dam, power penstock, a small reservoir at an elevation above San Vicente reservoir and related facilities, and the laying of transmission lines.
In July 2013, SDCWA along with CoSD, has issued a request for proposals seeking firms that could evaluate the economic and financial requirements of a pumped storage facility at the San Vicente Reservoir. Evaluation for the project will include an analysis of the power market, potential sites for an upper reservoir, regional power needs, and associated construction and operating costs.
On October 24, 2013, SDCWA awarded US$149,920 contract to Black & Veatch Corporation to perform an economic and financial study, and another US$59,667 contract to Navigant Consulting, Inc. to provide an independent review and give advice on next steps for the development of the project.
SDCWA entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the CoSD for joint participation in the implementation of the study.
In June 2015, CoSD voted for pursuing two-year study on the project.
The study will be conducted by SDCWA and SDCC.
On July 19, 2017, Request for proposal (RFP) was issued to appoint contractor with submission deadline as September 12, 2017.
